Learn what is Eenmanszaak or sole propietorship

TURN YOUR SKILLS INTO A SMALL BUSINESS!

What is an Eenmanzaak?

The direct translation of “eenmanzaak” would be one-man-business. Yes, it is exactly as it sounds. An eenmanzaak or a sole proprietorship is simply referring to a person who owns a business and is personally responsible for its debts. This procedure takes place at the Chamber of Commerce while the licenses can be requested and obtained at the Economic License Department.

Is an eenmanzaak liable only for permanent residence & Dutch Nationals?

No, an Antillean born, or Non- Antillean born both can have a sole proprietorship on St. Maarten. The only difference would be that an Antillean born would not need to obtain a director’s license where a Non – Antillean would. An Antillean born would only have apply for a license depending on what industry their company falls under. For example, a local resident would apply for an operational license only if their opening a restaurant, bar, etc.

Can someone with a temporary permit (1 or 3 years) obtain a sole proprietorship?

Yes, temporary residence would be able to apply for sole proprietorship. They would need to request a director license before they can commence the process of opening said sole proprietorship.

Are there any profit tax incentives for a sole proprietorship?

No, a sole proprietorship would pay the same monthly fees to the respective departments such as the Chamber of Commerce, Receivers’ Department and SZV Department (only if there are employees and they are ensured) as the N.V. or B.V.

What are the fees in connection to opening a sole proprietorship?

The fees for both Antillean & Non – Antillean Born is NAF 315 USD 175.00 for registrations at the Chamber of Commerce.

What are the steps in opening sole proprietorship?

Antillean Born (St. Maarten, Saba, Statia, Curacao, Bonaire, Aruba)

  • At the Chamber of Commerce, the individual requesting an eenmanzaak would have to do a name check to see if the name they wish is available for use. 3 chooses for the company name would be requested. The department then informs you via telephone or email the chosen name. no initials can be used for in the desired name choices.
  • The Model A Form that can be filled out via email has to be completed and submitted to the Chamber of Commerce in request for the sole Proprietorship. A digital copy would be submitted via the online portal and a hard copy must be presented to the department to confirm the request.
  • In additional to the hardcopy of the Model A form, a copy of the individuals passport, ID card and detailed census registration form/ G.E.B.E bill (in your name) must be attached to you request.
  • In conclusion to the procedure, the payment of USD 175.00 must be paid to the Chamber of Commerce for the completion of the application.

Non – Antillean Born

  • The same procedure applies for the non – Antillean born, but they must apply for a business license first before the above mention method is executed.
  • After the request is made, a stamped version of the application letter will be returned. This then can be used in the commencement of the sole proprietorship.

Can a sole proprietorship have employees?

Yes, a sole proprietorship can have employees. In the case of finding insurance for the workers, SZV provides insurance coverage for employees, but not for the employer. The employer will then have to apply for private insurance.

Is the crib number of the employer and the sole proprietorship the same?

Yes, the crib numbers remain the same. After requested the crib number for the sole proprietorship at the Tax Department, they will then link the company to the employer’s personal crib number.

Top reasons why you should consider moving to Sint Maarten

TOP 3 REASONS MOVING TO ST. MAARTEN

If you are a citizen of the United States and you are considering starting a business, working, or retiring in the Caribbean, here are some reasons why Sint Maarten should be on the top of your list. As the most recognized regional immigration services provider, operating throughout the English-speaking Caribbean, the team at BrightPath can offer you objective advice, as well as reliable immigration and relocation services in order for you and your family to safely move to the Caribbean.

Here are some important facts that make Sint Maarten a very attractive destination for US nationals wanting to relocate abroad:

1) The Dutch-American Friendship Treaty: Under article 3 paragraph 1 sub f. of the National Ordinance on Admission and Expulsion, Dutch citizens born outside of Sint Maarten (or the former Netherlands Antilles), will be legally admitted to Sint Maarten under the following two conditions – (i) Certificate of Conduct; and (ii) Housing and sufficient means to provide in their own livelihood.

What does this mean? In summary, if you can prove no criminal background and that you have sufficient verifiable funds, BrightPath can start your immigration process to get you legal residency.

Why does this benefit US nationals? Because under The Dutch-American Friendship Treaty, US Nationals are given equal privileges as Dutch citizens born outside of Sint Maarten and/or The Former Netherlands Antilles

Will obtaining residency affect your status as a US passport holder? The answer is no. You keep your US passport and you also acquire the right to live, work, retire, or even start your business on Sint Maarten.

2) Tax Benefits: Sint Maarten has no property taxes. Yes, that means you can purchase real estate here and not have to worry about annual property taxes. It’s absolutely property tax-free. There are also no taxes on goods or services and no capital gains tax. You can also import all your personal belongings free of any taxes because there are no custom duties on imported goods.

3) Real Estate and Banking: Sint Maarten’s real estate sector is holding strong with retained values on property, and in many cases, showing appreciation over time. Although the official currency is the Netherlands Antillean Florin (NAf), transacting in United States currency is widely practiced with no licensing required for bank accounts in US dollars. Internationally recognized banks still continue to operate on island, offering a stable banking system, with little to no sign of change in the foreseeable future.

Current entry requirements for Sint Maarten

ST. MAARTEN’S CURRENT ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

If you’re ready to start a business, open a bank account or plan your retirement in St. Maarten, contact BrightPath Caribbean today to schedule a consultation.

Exact Current SXM Tourist Entry Requirements

See them in the Covid area of the FILES in our Everything SXM Facebook Group or:

For current information on exactly what the entry requirements are in SXM, please see this site. It’s operated by the SXM government and it also includes individual forms you must fill out online in advance to get advance approval (“Pre-Approval”) to enter the country, and where you also are required to upload your RT PCR negative test results in detail. If you don’t do that, or if you send results in a form that is not acceptable to the island, you will not be allowed to board your flight.

What RT-PCR means; (It is Not “Real-Time”)

“PCR” is an acronym for polymerase chain reaction, and “RT” refers to reverse transcription — NOT “real time”. The only type of test for Covid-19 currently acceptable to the government of SXM is RT-PCR, though most labs simply refer to it as PCR.

Although it is the case that RT-PCR testing is being turned around faster now than it has been, do not confuse it with “real time” or “rapid” tests which are not the same. When in doubt, click the hyperlink in Item a), above, for exact current government requirements.

Finding & Taking RT-PCR Tests in Your Area

You must have a negative RT-PCR test taken less than 120 hours before your departure to SXM. If you’re on a connecting flight, this requirement relates to the departure of the final leg of your trip.

Where do you find a test in your area that will be able to deliver results to you within 120 hours? There are a number of ways to find out. You can ask friends who travel from your area; you can ask people on the site in your community where local people discuss local goings-on (that often works well); and you can also ask your primary care physician (PCP).

Covid tests taken for travel purposes are not always paid for by insurance. You might ask your PCP to send an order in to a local laboratory for a test for you — those will often be covered by insurance and results are very often posted at once, when ready, on the lab’s or hospital’s portal; you can then download those negative results in PDF format.

The SXM Entry Requirements referred to in this section specify what information must be in these reports — things like the name of the lab, lab location, date and time of test, type of test (RT-PCR), your name, and the result of your test. (Look here for complete specifics.) Once you get the negative-result PDFs from the lab for you and all of the people traveling with you, print them out and keep them with all the trip documentation that you will be taking with you — you will need them. You will also need the digital PDF downloaded from the lab that issued the negative results.

More on the Application for Entry into SXM and how the PDF relates to that application is below.

Applying Online for Admission to SXM: What & How, w/ Advice

The government of SXM wants to keep out people who are sick with Covid — that’s what all this is about. You must apply online for admission to SXM once you have negative results of your PCR test.

Go to the same website where you learned about entry requirements, here, to apply for admission. It is absolutely required and if you are not preapproved for admission you will not be able to get on your plane to go to SXM.

The application will take you only a few minutes to complete. It asks for your name, email address, the usual questions about whether you have any Covid symptoms or have been near anyone diagnosed with Covid recently, plus where you plan to stay on the island, among other things. It also asks you for the airline and flight number of your flight departing to SXM. (Remember the 120 hour requirement.) You then submit the application form from the website to EHAS (the electronic system that handles the applications) by clicking a button, with your lab-approval PDF attached. You will usually hear back in a few hours or overnight if you submit the form fairly late at night.

To make sure you get the paperwork approved as quickly as possible, we suggest you get your test taken at least several hours under the 120 hour threshold ahead of the time of your departure to SXM. That should give the laboratory plenty of time to get things to you so you can immediately file the application to get the information to EHAS, which will give EHAS as much time as possible. Their responsiveness is usually excellent.

If two or more people are going, we strongly suggest that you send each application using a different email address — that way, when you report your temperature every day as required after arrival (see below), you will know which person in your party is being asked to reply to a specific email from EHAS.

Overall, though you may be put off by the thought of having to do this, the process is quick, simple, and easy — and as we said the responsiveness is outstanding. Just do it — not a big deal at all.

What to Take With You When You Go (An Important Checklist)

Everything on this list is essential for you to get on your airplane and fly to St. Maarten. You may wish to print this and use it as a checklist before leaving for the airport:

  • Your passport and boarding passes (per usual);
  • Printed negative test results on laboratory stationery (this is the digital PDF form that the lab should send you to inform you of the results of your test); the test results form must include the information specified as required by Sint Maarten EHAS);
  • The Travel Pre-Approval form emailed to you by Sint Maarten EHAS in response to your submission of the negative Covid test (assuming your application is preapproved);
  • A thermometer, which you will need to take your temperature and that of your traveling companions during the first 14 days of your trip.

Reporting Your Condition to EHAS for 14 Days

Once you have arrived in St. Maarten, EHAS will email you a notice with a link to their site. You are required to click the link in their notice which takes you to a very brief online form which asks you to record your temperature and whether you had flu like symptoms that morning before having breakfast. You then click a button in the online form to send your completed results back to EHAS.

The form specifies what day of your vacation the report is for — day one, day two, etc. If you receive an email the following day, follow it just as you did the first day. If you don’t, however, go back to the email you received the first day and click that link again — it will take you to the form you can use to report your condition for day two or subsequent days. You must take your temp each day, and report it to EHAS online each day, which is why we said to take a thermometer with you. The current requirement is that you do this for 14 days. It takes less than 30 seconds each time and is simple, easy, and fast.

During a global Pandemic, SXM is doing everything possible to ensure everyone’s good health.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This guide is prepared from government information sources and is believed current at the time it was assembled. To ensure that you abide by the latest SXM Entry Requirements, carefully read the entire Country St. Maarten EHAS site before you start down the road to be tested and apply for entry. JMB Communications will not be held responsible in any fashion for any reader’s failure to read and abide by current rules applicable when they apply for Entry into SXM.

Obtain Legal Residency in St. Maarten Through Real Estate

SO YOU BOUGHT A PROPERTY IN ST. MAARTEN…

Often times, in our day-to-day interactions with colleagues in the real estate sector, as well vacation home-owners that have their primary home abroad, we run into this scenario. Many people that have purchased real estate on the island don’t even realize that this may give them the option to apply and likely qualify to obtain legal residency on the island. Having legal residency on the island is helpful if you wish to transition into a more “permanent” Caribbean lifestyle – not to mention, it’ll save you the long lines at the airport on arrival!

As the most recognized immigration services provider on the island, we at BrightPath are happy to provide you with the services required.

Why hire a professional for your immigration and relocation needs?

THINKING ABOUT MOVING TO THE CARIBBEAN?

Moving is tough – all of us who have made that big jump and relocated to another country can confirm it’s not the easiest experience. Change is often difficult. Do you know what’s even more difficult? From our experience at BrightPath, we would say that finding the right advisors to guide you in the decision-making process is often like finding a needle in a haystack. So, if you’re considering emigrating to the Caribbean, here are some tips to take into consideration if St Maarten is on your relocation radar:

1-No office, no thank you! – Needless to say, if you’re considering entrusting someone with your immigration process, you should definitely adopt this policy. The days of handing over your most private and confidential documents to someone who’s not licensed and doesn’t have a storefront (and reputable) business operation are a “no-no”. Save yourself a horror story and rely on this one as a rule of thumb.

2-Check for references – check, check, and check some more. Just because your friends took the big leap and did it themselves, doesn’t mean you should too. COVID-19 has caused changes to procedures, requirements, and timeframes. Make sure that you do your research, manage your expectations, and look online for reviews and credible feedback on available immigration services providers.

3-Rely on a team of experts – It’s important to sort out the best in their industry and rely on their specialty only. What does this mean? It means your real estate agent is your real estate specialist (period). Your banker is your banking specialist (period). Your tax advisor… well, you get the point. So, guess what? Your immigration specialist, is your immigration specialist (PERIOD).

4-Do it right and do it once – If you’re a US national obtaining legal residency on the island, in most cases it’s usually a one-time matter when applied for properly. Although other islands in the Caribbean may be actively promoting “live and work here” immigration programs targeting US nationals, St Maarten is unique in that The Dutch-American Friendship Treaty streamlines the residency process for Americans. What does this mean? That in most cases, your residency permit, once approved is for an indefinite period of time – no annual renewals and no additional fees. Once and it’s done. Even better is the fact that you get to keep your US passport and your rights as a US citizen. Applying for legal residency on the island of St Maarten does not have an impact on your US passport holding status.
